COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ten FIDY Imperial Stout This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 65 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. Ten FIDY (10.5% ABV) is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. Ten FIDY is the ultimate celebration of dark malts and boundary-stretching beer.

POURED LIKE BLACK SYRUP. POURED VERY AGGRESSIVELY AND HARDLY ANY TAN HEAD. SMELLED LIKE SWEET AND FRUITTY.TASTED SWEET TO START A LITTLE BITTER TOWARD THE END WITH A NICE BITTER AFTER TASTE. ALSO A LITTLE ALCOHOL AT THE END.

Can. Pours a viscous jet black, and coming from the can, does look like motor oil. Thick dense chocolate head which falls off steadily. Fruit with a big pineapple and mango tone interestingly enough, chocolate, roast, vanilla. Smooth, medium bodied, hides the abv remarkably well. Devils foodcake and chocolate pudding on the finish. Really tasty.

At a tasting, many thanks David, oily pour, almost no head, opaque very extremely dark brown colour, flavours of coffe, nuts, dried fruits, flavours of medium roasted coffee, porcini mushrooms, toasted brea,d brown sugar and hints of tobbaco. Big bodied and very sweet but still very good.

Had the 10:50 all over the place, most recently on tap at Uber. Pours black as night and out of a can, just like motor oil.

This is a thick thick beer. Its the thickest beer ive ever seen. If there was ever a beer to make a beer float with... this is it. But as a beer alone, .... skip it in my opinion. It is so dark and rich... its for the espreso crowd. I think if I enjoyed espreso id love this beer. thick dark, malty, dark chocolate, coffee.

What are you waiting for? Cmon you know you want it. Take a big thick 8-inch slice of extra-moist and dense triple-layer dark chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache frosting. Slap it on a cheap paper plate accompanied with a flimsy plastic fork and then... Go get a can of this sludge, and while making a visibly flamboyant display, crack it open and serve it to your girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/wife/friend in cheap plastic solo cups; just to show them whos their daddy. With Ten FIDY you dont have to be cool.

segfault (103) - Centennial, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Pour is blacker than night, with a beautiful khaki head that sticks around. Big malt nose, touch of noble hops spice. A big, meaty, creamy palate slips easily down. Flavors of chocolate malt, cocoa, dried plum. After swallowing, the lingering flavors develop into a roasty nuttiness. So smooth, no alcohol heat - hard to believe in a beer over 9%. Beautiful. Among the very best Imperial Stouts.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 Canned. Black as black gets, pours like oil. Chocolate brown head, with orange hue. Aroma is BIG starting with roasted burnt chocolate, variety of citrus, cider notes, vanilla and more hops than youd expect from a stout. Also not very much coffee like other stouts, only a little bit. Flavor is roasted chocolate, orange peel, a little also like cider as in scent. Overwhelming. Palate is full bodied and unbelievably well balanced. Smooth finish.

sebletitje (10067) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2009
pours thick black oil, thick mocha head with lingering golden lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, some bitter chocolate and toffee. Flavor, malty, plenty of chocolate, mocha/milky some roast, warming abv with light bitter chocolate finish. Boozy mouthfeel with some peppery notes and dark fruits.Light bitter pine finish.

WLG423 (201) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Pours out of a CAN! like motor oil, thick and almost black in color. Strong roasted malt aroma. Flavor has notes of coffee and chocolate with hints of hops behind the malt. A thick slightly syrupy mouth feel with a long lasting slightly tart finish. Notes of alcohol lightly permeate.
